AZ Drops Lawsuit Over Generic Farxiga

According to court documents, AZ has dismissed its lawsuit against Zydus Pharmaceuticals over Zydus’ generic Farxiga filing in the US. The suit was initially filed with the US District Court, New Jersey on May 3, 2018 and claimed infringement on two AZ patents (6,414,126 and 6,515,117). Interestingly, the suit was dropped even though Zydus did not answer AZ’s complaint or filed a motion for summary judgment. It is unclear as to why AZ decided to withdraw its lawsuit vs. Zydus; however, AZ and Zydus may have come to an agreement outside of the courts. Below, FENIX provides an analysis based on the FDA Orange Book and Paragraph IV filings.
